This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Flood fill white.

New Raster layer.
Make your Selection Tool active set on Rectangle.
Create a rectangle approximately 475 x 275 pixels.

Center it on your canvas.

Color Pallet:
Foreground: #c0c0c0

Set the foreground to gradient:

Use your Eraser tool and erase only the area of the tube you don’t want hanging outside of the rectangle.
